Once more, deadly fate
has placed me in your hands.  I do believe
Father Zeus must hate me, to give me to you
for a second time.  My mother, Laothoë,
daughter of old Altes, gave birth to me 
to live a shortened life.  Altes rules over
war-loving Leleges, in steep Pedasus,
by the river Satnioeis.  His daughter
married Priam, who has many other wives.
She had two sons.  Now you'll have slaughtered both.

Homer, Iliad

In Greek mythology , Altes was the father of Laothoe.

Iliad XXI, 86; XXII, 51
